Restaurants are among the top destinations of tourists. They need to taste local food, lol.. I think awards like this will help them feel excited a lot.

by Decals on Apr 13 2010 at 12:38 AM

They know who is gonna win since the first time. I guess the number of daily visitors is the best clue.

by Msdiet on Apr 12 2010 at 11:23 PM

Cool.. These restaurants must get a lot of exposure now and then. Well… at least until we have new restaurants awarded this year.

by DunnKC on Apr 12 2010 at 8:32 PM

Maybe it was an off night, but the service wasn't great, there was blood on my bread plate, and the food was only okay. Granted, the price was right, and it was trendy, but price alone shouldn't be enough to attract business, and the whole experience just didn't live up to the hype.

by fizbone on Apr 9 2010 at 8:46 PM

A couple of things make no sense

In the category of Best Vancouver Island, Sooke Harbor House gets gold and the tip at the Wickaninnish Inn received an honorable mention. Then in the next category, Best resort in the dining room gets the gold and silver Pointe Sooke is !!!!!!??????

Secondly, obviously, the judges consider that the Okanagan Kelowna.

Some of the best food in the valley comes from Amante Bistro in Penticton, have a copy on its website of Globe & Mail article written last spring by Alexandra Gill (probably the only honest food critic in Canada), what really makes them justice.

Finally, the fourth in Cabana is nice but the food is beaten and lose, I had much more enjoyable meals at the stake in Westbank desserts are to die for!

Traveling is a great fun.It becomes a pleasurable experience when our stay is in a good hotel.Whenever we visit a hotel or a restaurant we judge it on the basis of services offered. Good services are thus an essential part of forming the basis of judgment.Hotel supply is an important area where quality of services do matter.

The standard of Vancouver restaurants are very high these days and this award is well deserved. There are still a few lessons to be learnt on the service end. In Dubai for instance the hotels where many of the Dubai Escorts hang out seem to have the most amazing service in their restaurants.

It's nice to see Vancouver continuing to make its mark on the world stage with this wonderful Japanese restaurant. This proves that it is not only New York that has the best Japanese restaurants.

My personal favorite would have to be Japanese izakaya Hapa on Robson Street, fantastic service (even if it takes time to get a table at times) the food is great, I have observed using many if not all heads of Japan and just generally a very pleasant atmosphere.

A quantity of the best restaurants, of course, have feet in both camps, looking at the job of their family and paying close heed to growers and the land, while using the latest tech and techniques to explain their best qualities to the table as plainly as likely. The very best do it invisibly.

Investment in fine wine has attracted fraudsters who prey on their victims' ignorance of this sector of the wine market. Wine fraudsters often work by charging excessively high prices for off-vintage or lower-status wines from famous wine regions, while claiming that they are offering a sound investment unaffected by economic cycles. Like any investment, proper research is essential before investing.

Really? Les Faux Bourgeois? I was actually super-disappointed with them. Maybe it was an off night, but the service wasn't great, there was blood on my bread plate, and the food was only okay. Granted, the price was right, and it was trendy, but price alone shouldn't be enough to attract business, and the whole experience just didn't live up to the hype. However, La Quercia was tremendous. So, good call there.
